        It was a great article, it's a shame I wont get over there this weekend to see it. Any Idea when it will be back in the park. The article stated it would be going back for some tweeking, not when it would be back.

          If it's Beaker and his friend that crazy scientist, I saw them putting them together these past few months everyday on the drive home. We'd be on the 5 fwy and on the passenger side of the car there was a one story building with one of those large roll-up doors that garages use. It was fun watching the progress. I thought they were gonna be used for a movie.
          How cool, I love Beaker! (I hope that's what this is......if not....egg on my face.) =)

            I saw an article on this today on Engadget, and they had a YouTube video clip of the Bunsen / Beaker rig in action. Seems like they had some technical difficulties at one point, but it was still cute. I only hope they get a better voice actor for Bunsen, cause he just didn't sound right at all.

              Thanks for the link! That is what my family and I saw off the 5 fwy in Brubank on the way home. How cool!

                The technology looks amazing! So cool to see Dr. Bunsen Honeydew and Beaker at DCA.

                However, that YouTube clip seems to say it all about sending the animatronic back for "tweaking." Most of the audience appeared to leave before the technical malfunction.

                Bring on the funny, cuz outside of watching the machine, it just wasn't.

                  That's awesome!! especially seeing the video footage. I saw the talking trashcan at WDW but this is just on another level and it's great to see the Muppets get another feature in the parks as well. Hopefully they can wheel this out to Disney Paris before the summer as would love to see it there on our trip.

                  Is anyone else surprised of the lack of crowd around it?? I'd be marking out for it!

                      They had it out in the park today. Just wasn't at the right place at the right time today. As of right now, the CM whom I talked to said there isn't a set time for it to come out. But by the time we got in the park after lunch, they had already had it out twice. And from what I heard the CM say, people enjoyed it. We hung around for a little bit to see it they would bring it out, but we gave up because there were to many of the jr cheerleader girls that invaded the park. We decided to leave and go over to DL. So maybe I will get to see it next week. They told me they come out the gate near to where muppets exit is. So if by chance someone sees it on sunday, please post to let us know about it. Thanks.

                        This would fit right in outside of Muppets 3D at MGM. Peoples jaws would drop.
